Spring Cleaning for Spring Fair

We are all so excited about Spring Fair, Friday, May 24th

We are collecting new and gently used items for kids ranging in age from 4 to 14 for the School Store! Drop them in the labeled bin in the Office Lobby. 
C lear out new or in gently-use items your family no longer needs. Items that have been very popular in the past include: 
  • Bikes, scooters, skateboards
  • Games with all pieces intact
  • Toys in good working condition
  • Dolls and their accouterments
  • Puzzles with all pieces intact
  • Video game sets and play systems
  • Baggies of Legos and other building toys
  • Trading and game cards (like Pokemon)
  • Pretend and dress up toys
* The School Store is a great way for children to purchase a book, toy or memento at a very low cost while keeping re-useable items out of the landfill! Each child will have an opportunity to purchase something upwards from $1.00.
* Any item not sold will be donated to a shelter for families with children.
* If you have any questions please contact Lucia Granger
Play Ball!
We need YOU to join us - playing adult coed summer softball with Greenfield under the lights at Taney Field! It's a great way to meet other Greenfield parents and get a little exercise. This is fun, casual softball and nothing too competitive.
Our three teams typically play one weeknight per week, starting after 7 p.m., from June - August. If you can't make every game, don't worry - we make sure the team rosters are large enough to account for family vacations.
Interested? Contact Bob Davis.
Opportunity for Instrumental Students

The Temple University Community Music Scholarship is a great opportunity for instrumental students. It requires parental registration and a recommendation from the instrumental music teacher. If you are interested, please reach out to Ms. Kay-Clark or Ms. Wilkinson. Find out more information HERE
Moving? Let Us Know.

If your child will not be returning to Greenfield in the Fall please contact the main office (215-400-7810). This information assists our staff in creating class lists for next year. Thank you! 

A percentage of each tuition will be donated to the Athletics and Recess program at Greenfield.

Information and registration details HERE. Completed paperwork can be turned in to Captain Kurk.
